I picked up a 67 similar to that one for $1150 about 6 or so months ago. Tuners and bridge had been changed, mine still has the S/N though.

And I agree, those old p90's sound a heck of allot better. 8)

Or did I pay $1200? It was somewhere around $1150 or $1200

i never did like the oig.tuners on the spec. so the schallers aren't that big a deal to me- the badass i would def replace w/a ri wraparound.if i could find a spec. like that for 1100-1200 i would be all over it.imo,it's worth easy $1500(in canada) as a player.the lack of s/n may be an issue,otherwise not hard to put back to orig.

the best wraparound adjustable is probably the pigtail.

actually all of pigtails gibson reproduction parts are considered to be the best,the only problem can be very slow service as they are handmade to military tolerances.

It just so happens I have this lying around. I think I have the studs and inserts as well. I believe it's a Gibson repro from their custom shop historic line. I bought it to use on my '60 Special VOS, but decided I like the tone of the lightweight aluminum wraparound better. Make me a reasonable offer and it's yours if you'd like.

FYI, Spaceman: It was sold to me as one of these. I think I paid $60 dollars for it a year or two ago and I'm not looking to make a profit...just trying to find a good home for gear I'm not using!!! :cheers:
